This plant pot is made out of recycled plastics from computer and electronic parts.
Presumably, any toxin’s from the e-waste have been safely removed but you should probably avoid growing anything you will eventually put in my mouth.

Looking at illustrators for our Illustration brief, I found Catherine Rayner. I love her free flowing technique with the colour moving out the lines. This style I find very difficult to do, because the randomness of the colour never appears random to me.
